t is frequently claimed that GM foods are not properly tested, or asserted that few independent studies have been published to establish their safety.

Another similar claim made is that the food regulatory agencies rely exclusively of corporate information to decide whether GM food and feed are safe. The further claim is made that very few independent tests relating to GM food safety are done. This conventional 'wisdom' is wrong. The modern scientific literature shows that these commonly held opinions are merely myths. Academics Review website comprehensively shows that many of these myths are merely baseless rumours and misinformation.

Did you know there are over 200 synthetic chemicals found in the cord blood of newborns, influences of civilized society with unknown effects that our children are exposed to even before they are born?

Pondering the number of foods, chemicals, products and other environmental influences that are in our children's world that weren't even around thirty, fifty, or a hundred years ago is mind-boggling. I know that testing products on children is kind of a no-no and not done as often as animal tests or adult human testing, so I assumed that there were likely no studies on the safety of many "food products" that children regularly consume. I couldn't wait to start researching the idea.

Eggs have a bad reputation, but the newest scientific research finds no connection between eggs and high cholesterol or heart disease. In fact, eggs may just be the perfect food.

Many Americans were raised on the theory that eggs were loaded with artery-clogging cholesterol, and that eating them was a surefire way to promote coronary heart disease. That couldn't be further from the truth, though. When Wake Forest University researchers reviewed some of the top scientific studies, they found no link between eating eggs and heart disease.

Among the ostensibly "non-essential" services on hold during the government shutdown is the Food and Drug Administration's food inspection program. As many as 80 food production facilities each day may be going uninspected.

Food coming from outside the U.S. is also going unmonitored. As Food Safety News first reported, meat inspectors at the USDA are still on duty, but food-safety workers at the FDA are not allowed to use their cellphones, check their emails or, most important, inspect imported food. Normally, according to Quartz, the FDA blocks imports from tens of thousands of facilities with records of violations.

Fingernails and disease don't go together in most minds... but they should. Your fingernails can give you valuable health warnings and signal the presence of serious disease.

Take a good long look at your nails. Hold a hand level with your nose about a foot out from your face and scrutinize each one. Look at the curves, dips, ridges, and grooves. Check out how thick or thin they are and if your nails are chipped or broken. Make a note of the color of the nail itself, the skin under it, and the skin around the nail.
